Lady hunterHunting is a tradition and a part of our heritage. It’s a seasonal activity, and the rules are simple: Follow Wisconsin State hunting regulations and state laws including seasons, dates, and licensing. To ensure every hunter has an opportunity to enjoy traditional hunting experiences, we ask hunters to follow the guidance below:

  • Obtain a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) to review restrictions and view where motorized use begins or ends (some may not be signed as closed). Copies of MVUM maps are available online and at all USDA Forest Service Offices. Consider downloading and install the Avenza app to view current Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest’s MVUM on your smart phone or tablet device.
  • It is prohibited to take any motorized vehicle behind a berm, gate, rock, barrier post, or other closure device within the national forest. Highway legal vehicles are not allowed on designated ATV and snowmobile trails. Operation of a motor vehicle within any active timber sale area is dangerous and is prohibited.
  • Follow MVUM guidelines for parking - 30 ft. from the edge of any road surface when safe without damage to national forest system resources or facilities, unless prohibited otherwise.
  • Blinds can be constructed with natural dead materials gathered from the immediate area or with artificial materials. The use of any nails, wires, screws, or other harming metal objects to fasten camouflage, blinds, or stands to a live tree is prohibited.
  • To cut or damage any live tree is prohibited. Cutting, trimming, or removing brush larger than 1 inch in diameter is prohibited.
  • Discharging a firearm on or across a national forest system road, within 150 yards of a Forest Service campground, building, or other developed recreation site, such as, boat launches/landings, picnic areas, or any other occupied areas is prohibited.
  • Leave No Trace and be safe. You are always responsible for your own safety.
